Executive Director | Los Angeles Police Department (Ret)

Edmund Russell is the Executive Director of the California Police Athletic Federation (CPAF) bringing 15 years of experience as a Board Member and three years as the Executive Director. Edmund recently retired from the Los Angeles Police Department after providing 31 years of service to the City of Los Angeles.

Edmund was an accomplished tennis player in both the US and World games since 1988, earning many medals. When approached by a fellow board member to help with the Games, Edmund jumped at the opportunity. Over the past 10 years, he has been instrumental in developing new updates for sporting events within the organization. As the Executive Director, Edmund’s goal is to take CPAF to the next level. He hopes to get the word out about the Games through different marketing campaigns that will make CPAF more noticeable to its eligible participants, which was updated in 2021.

In his free time, Edmund likes to travel, bike, and spend time with his family that was not always available to him when he worked as an officer.
